    An East team rope master gives the command to pull during the 43rd annual Naha Otsunahiki, or Naha Giant Tug-of-War at Naha City, Okinawa, Oct. 13. The rope masters direct the efforts of each team, helping the participants pull in unison. The tug-of-war has roots dating back to the 15th century when Okinawa was a part of the Ryukyu Kingdom. The East and West teams represent competing dynasties of the kingdom.
